Autumn - Winter Basics

My best friend Cris who is also a blogger, just posted about the main pieces of clothing, women should have in their wardrobes for the new season. I loved the post, but since her Blog is written in Portuguese, I asked her if I could translate it and post it here. She said yes, so I hope you enjoy it, as much as I did. For the original post click here: Through Kikas Eyes.
"Since the new season is here we really have to bring back our Autumn/winter clothes. Sometimes it's not an easy task and it can be pretty hard, because most of the times we don't like the stuff we already have and the idea of wearing that again is unbearable.
There's nothing better than update our wardrobes. But what should we buy? Besides what we read in fashion mags about the new trends, I recommend buying some essential pieces of clothing.
We can wear these clothes at any time and also in moments of crises, when we don't know what to wear; I assure you that we will always look great and stylish!
Before you start looking for the new season's must-haves, just check if you already have the following pieces that can make a real wardrobe."
Trench-coat - Burberry
Jeans - French Connection

Leather Jacket - Mike & Chris
White shirt - Vivienne Westwood
Little black dress - jcrew


From Cris list, I'm only missing the leather jacket and I so want one! What about you guys, what are you missing in your wardrobes?

I'm missing the trench coat and the white shirt! But I've seen a great trench coat at A.P.C. and another at GAP... not sure if it would suit me... Oh well :)
I got my leather jacket at zara! I love it. But it's from last year and I haven't seen any other nice leather jackets lately. Hope you find one soon^-^

Great post and very timely for me. Having started to read The Little Black Book of Style I have done some intense wardrobe editing! I have a white DVF shirt, trench by Hobbs (last season but a good Burberry ringer), 2 pairs of 7 For All Mankind jeans and a Next version of the black leather biker jacket. The quest for the LBD is now officially on - I feel that on reaching 40 next year I should have one, and a Chanel at least! a 40th birthday perhaps?!

I don't own a little black dress because I'm a boy...but I have all the above. :-)

seriously that leather jacket is to DIE for.. and seriously i don't know why im browsing on blogs when i have two midterms tomorrow! oh dear!!

thanks for your sweet comment :) do you want to trade links?
